The Seattle Times caption for this photo printed on Feb. 15, 1940 reads, in part “Once the pride of the Municipal Street Railway and the only one of its kind west of Chicago, the four-way street-car switch at North 34th Street and Fremont Avenue, at the north end of the Fremont Bridge, will be removed as part of the city’s change from street cars to busses and trackless trolleys. Called a “Grand Union track layout,” it coast $48,000 to build and install in 1923, a street car entering from any direction may turn either way or go straight ahead.”
